From the Lake Eildon Boat Owners Group
As stated in our last bulletin the Dept Energy Land Water and Planning [DELWP] were about to appoint a consultant to examine the current Regulations and assess what amendments are needed and recommend these to the DELWP. The consultant has in his charter to have discussions with us as well as all other interested parties.
They were supposed to be appointed in July but I believe it is only over the last 2-3 weeks that the appointment has been made. They have promised to speed the enquiry by the consultant but it will certainly be many months before the new Regs are in place.
We have therefore adopted a different tack as you can see by our letter to the Minister [click here to download the letter]. Because the consultant will be submitting their recommendations to the DELWP we are therefore asking the Minister to suspend the Regulations as we know them now until the news Regulations are in place. We have given them 14 days to get back to us.
We will keep you informed as soon as we have the results from the DELWP.
